Global Morning News – Beautiful Italy Guided Tour

Posted on: June 4, 2024

Italy just keeps coming out on top as far as favourite destinations are concerned and we have a chance here to save over $1,000 CAD per person on this fully guided tour.

Let’s take a look –

This 17 day guided tour takes you from the bottom of Italy visiting the beautiful village of Alberobello with its truli style houses – all the way up to the Italian lakes and of course Venice.

Let’s see where you get to go and visit

Start off in Rome and then on to Puglia and stay in the olive region in the little town of Alberobello. The trulli houses are the real feature here and you will get to sample some fine olive oil too.

Then off to Sorrento and then a full day on the Isle of Capri. Onward to Pompei to explore the ruins and then Assisi – the home of St Francis.

Then a couple of days in Venice and then on to the Italian lakes via Milan. Stay at Lake Maggiore. I had a stay there a couple of years ago and loved it.

La Spezia follows – with lots of free time to explore – and then on to Florence with a stop to get your photo at the Leaning Tower of Piza. Finish up in Rome.

Why do a guided tour of Italy?

  • Less stress – everything is taken care of – all you have to do is enjoy
  • Expert knowledge and local insights – I know that I gain much more from my travel when I am with a knowledgeable guide
  • Time efficiency – the most important commodity. Don’t waste your time and stress yourself out with trying to do it all alone
  • Best choice for Italy – more popular then ever so sometimes private transfers don’t work, there is a shortage of drivers
  • Get to make new friends

Now you can save money too –

This tour is regularly priced $7050 CAD per person (tour only – no air) but it has been reduced by over $1,000 CAD per person
